CycleLife…Beauty & Strength

Share

We live in a world where everyone is encouraged to celebrate and create an image that is rooted in the visual image that conveys a story we want to tell. Many people are plagued with the compulsion of photographing ‘self’; until, they get the perfect picture to reflect that tale they want to tell. In addition, some individuals alter their image so many times that it no longer looks like who they are in the physical world. The habit to create an imaginary image of self can start innocently enough; yet, it can lead one into a state of delusion and preoccupation with the future. Rather than authentically sharing what is in the present moment and engaging in that moment at hand. In addition, as Gaston points out in the quote above, “..Are you more aware of your beauty than your strength?”

Which creates the initial core distinction between true beauty and innate strengths and a persona that is fabricated. This is not to say that beauty does not serve a purpose because it does.

However, it has been long forgotten there is an innate essence of beauty built into all of nature. 

Including you.

Rather dive deeper into the purpose of one’s beauty as a mirror to communicate an identity only, I encourage those inspired to sit with his words and even meditate on them if you are inspired. “For whom do you look at yourself? Against whom do you look at yourself? Are you aware of your beauty or of your strength?” Gaston Bachelard

Inner Work. Go For It.

I often share with my clients and those close to me that “I am Absolutely Work in Progress”. I, too, ride the waves of life. I am in it just like the rest of humanity. Yet, I have a personal goal to keep transforming, and evolving. Furthermore, I want to master riding the tides of life with harmony and peace. I practice and I am focused on learning how to drop in and ride every wave that life gives me with grace. 

The inner work is liberating, humbling and deeply personal. During this time of year, many of you might feel alone, grief and/or vulnerable. If inspired you might decide to tap into the the possibility within these emotions, situations, memories and internal experiences. It is right there within the disharmony, the pain and/or fear…the ease is just on the other side of that energy you might feel in your mind, heart, body and/or soul. The freedom rests right there…beyond that threshold. The simple way to move with the dis’ease’ and liberate the uncomfortable is to be of service to life. Read More (Click Here)

Dream with Clarity, Awareness. Leads to Your Destiny

Clear Light Sleep

Clear Light Sleep is practiced through sleep yoga, clear light sleep. It naturally arises when the body is sleeping but the practitioner is not lost in the darkness or dreams. Instead the practitioner sits in pure awareness.

Clear light is the union between emptiness and clarity. Clear meaning emptiness. Light meaning clarity, pure innate awareness. You are the clear light. It is not an object of your experience or a mental state. The pure, luminous awareness in the darkness is blissful, clear, still, without reference, without judgement, without center…there is nor illusion of separation. It is the true nature of mind.

Emotions. How to respond to them and transform your life. Inner Peace.

Emotional responses are an indicator to the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual being how you are feeling about the present moment. In addition, your emotions help you understand what conditions build, sustain and/or deplete your well being.
When, you feel an emotion rising from within, each one is filled with a positive charge of energy (nourishes your well being), negative charge of energy (depletes your well being) or a neutral (there is no charge). Your feelings indicate what nourishes your well being, where you need to take action, where you need to examine self (which follows with the need to heal/transform), where you need to come back into harmony, where you are holding back, and/or out of balance. Extreme emotional responses are a push from the inner being to come into harmony…these emotions will be expressed through excessive anger, laughter, crying, anxiety, sadness, grief, worry, doubt, righteousness and over compensation with the mask of ‘Pretending to BE HAPPY’.

Ways to Maintain Harmony within YOU…Surrender HERE

Surrender HERE. Cause and Effect

Then, welcome remembering your natural state of being…harmony and bliss. At this juncture you will naturally come from a place of service from moment to moment. When you are in harmony you are not making any effort, you will be at ease. You do not have to consciously by “mindful” because it will ‘BE’ your natural state of being. Furthermore, you will be objectively aware of how our thoughts, words and actions will potentially intersect each moment and what the true nature of cause and effect. When in this state of being, it is no longer just about you.
I share this because I had a beautiful experience yesterday teaching yoga to a group of individuals transforming their relationship to eating and self. One of the students shared her discomfort with her body and how difficult it was to participate or even watch me teach her. We talked through what this meant for her, she shared how uncomfortable she was in her body. Which is common side effect of an eating disorder. Rather than just pacifying her with a pep talk and ask her to try the class as I had planned, I asked her to share the postures that she is comfortable with. After some contemplation, she came up with child’s pose, prone posture and corpse. A (3) posture class. We went deep moving from child’s pose to prone and then they rolled over and they received sound in corpse. By moving through this class slowly the magic of a posture and the breath opened the students up to physical, emotional, spiritual and mental releases. This student cried for the first time and was able to experience yoga. As I share with all my yoga students, the asana (postures) are only one limb of yoga and they are what prepares the mind, body, heart and soul for meditation. In addition, I share the entire purpose of yoga is to welcome self into meditation while in corpse pose. When you master corpse you have mastered yoga. While, it is incredible to see what the human body will do and how supple the body can ‘BE’…no amount of “doing” will bring you to meditative repose. Furthermore, yoga was never intended to be an activity to show off your body…you will sense that yoga is starting to crack you open when the ‘I’ retires with the your senses and your inner ethics rise ‘UP’. The grasping starts to fall away and the mind with the heart are clear and open. Humility…is what ultimately leads you to this union (yoga) with self.  READ MORE (CLICK HERE)
